the Glory of his Name : Ascribe the Glory to his Irradiation. Pfal. cxlviii. 4. Render to him the Irradiation of Light, ye Names of the Names. So Ifa. vii. 14. he was called by the Direction of the Holy Ghost 58733y the Irradiator with us. As all others were, this was misapplied by the Heathens to one of the Names, Jer. xlix. 4. 1. 38.

Great Disputes have been about the Name of one who was to succeed the Race of the Jewish Kings, or Rulers in that State, Gen. xlix. 10. obou Shilah, afterwards the Name of the Place where the Ark and Cherubim first stood in Canaan. It had been called hw and obw and was the same, or near Bethel. But the Tabernacle, with the Emblems, was called ogbong from the Person represented there, as it was frequently called the Glory or Place of Glory. And often by another of his Names, also represented there, of which below. The Word is compounded of u who, the Jod as a Sign in lieu of 17; so

77777 retaining the Signification in the latter to be made, becausc to irradiate Light, is the Idea of the second Person in the Effence. But the Man who pretends to that is mad. As in the Text; As a Madman who casteth Firebrands, (Flames or Sparks) Arrows and Death -and faith, am not 1. in Sport. And they have been superlatively mad who have attributed that Power to Orbs, Stones, buc. The same Manner of Termination is used in 7507&c. But as that Idea was too gross even for one leavened with the Doctrine of the Rabbies, and though the first is evidently to be distracted, as they had construed it to Labour, he has attempted to prove its Relation to the Root 785 to labour, to be fatigued ; but that will not do; the x in 1789 is al. ways radical, so it must stand till He who irradiates, The Light come : So Ezek. xxi. 25. And thou profane wicked Prince of lírael, whore' Day is come, when Iniquity shall have an End. Thus faith Adonai Jehovah, remove the Diadem, and take off the Crown: This fall not be the same, exalt him that is low,

and

and abase him that is high. I will overturn, overturn, overturn it, (perverted, perverted, perverted, will I make it) and it mall be no more, until he come whose Řight it is, and I will give it him : Hof. xii. I. And Judah yet reigns with the Irradiator, and with the Holy Ones is faithful. . · We can give no Idea of the original Name, Glory or Gravity, but by the Type, in a material and mechanical Sense. He by the Motion's, Actions, or Effects of the Light, in this Sense the Gravitor, in this Machine the Names, performs every thing in the support 'of this material Sy. stem, in moving the Orbs, in circulating Water, in the Production of Vegetables from Seeds, and Animals from Eggs, dc. so Light is the Glory of the Names, and the Subject, the Object of Man's Admiration. Which Irradiation is expressed by several of its most visible or sensible Effects upon other passive Matter in geneneral ; upon Solids, by their being formed and kept solid ; upon Fluids, by being compressed, upon both, by giving a Tendency or Gravitation towards the Orb of the Earth, or impressing Weight upon every Atom of them; and in their being moved (where not obstructed) by the Com

· pressure or Impulse of Light, assisted by the

Spirit; and therefore the Word 720 is often and more properly translated Gravity, or Gravitor, of which together in the latter Part.

Irradiation in general is expressed by the Word yo', not only for this Irradiation of Light outward, but also for that of the Spirit inward, and for the supernatural Representations, but in spiritual AdminiItration. Fob iii. 4. Nor let the Light fine upon it. Ibid. xxxvii. 15. And his Cloud cause the Light to mine. ibid. x. 22. And Irradiation like that of concreted Grains (Spirit). Deut. xxxiii. 2. Jehovah-irradiated from Mount Paran. Pfal. 1. 2. Out of Sion the Perfection of Beauty, hath the Aleim irradiated. ibid. 1xxx. 2. Thou that dwelleft in the Cherubim, irradiate. Job. x. 3. And irradiate upon the Counsel of the Wicked. PC. xciv. 1. 5 Irradiator of Revenges, lehovah, Irradiator of Revenges fine forth; lift up thyself thou Judge of the Earth. This is also ascribed to the Names the false Aleim, Ezek. xxviii. 7, 17.

In relation to the extraordinary Work of the Redemption of Man, the Glory in a mixed Sense, spiritually and coro poreally, by voluntary Covenant, was

like like the Light, to be sent forth and diffuse itself. The second Person under the typical Names of Irradiator, The Glory, That Person in Jehovah was to be united with Man, that he might be able, in this party to diffuse himself in Beneficence to Men; that that Person might be able to perform perfect Righteousness for all Mankind; to suffer the Wrath of the Father, fatisfy Tustice, and attone for the Sins of all Mankind. And, in despight of the Subtilty, Envy and Malice of Satan in seducing Man, should defeat, overcome, and so justly sentence him to everlasting Torment, and redeem Man; and thereby reclaim such, as would believe, to love the Aleim, and to be fit to be beloved by them; to conquer Death, to take Poffefsion; and finally put them into the State which was intended for Man.

As the Power of Irradiation, though in the whole fluid Substance the Emblem is, as one may say, in Action mechanically divided, one Part to the Fire, one to the Light, and one to the Spirit; so that Power, in the Efence it represents, is, as one may say, by the Covenant oeconomically divided to the Father to punish Sinners, to take Vengeance of them in Christ; to the Light the Son to rule the Vol. VI.
